Peer Exchanges

Peer exchanges, as required under 23 CFR, Section 420.207(b) are a practical and effective tool to foster excellence in R&T program management. They provide an opportunity for participants to share best practices and management innovations through an open exchange of ideas, knowledge, and brainstorming. Both staff and management from the home State and a group of invited top-level State and Federal managers exchange information particularly relevant to the home State’s R&T program over 2 to 4 days. Many questions about peer exchanges can be found in the State Planning and Research Guide on Peer Exchanges (see Guidance Documents below).  

Peer Exchange Reports

View reports of past peer exchanges. Please forward peer exchange reports for posting to the R&I/RAC Web Manager. A copy will be posted on the R&I/RAC website, a copy is sent to TRIS, and a copy is sent to the National Transportation Library for cataloguing and indexing.

Peer Exchange Activities

This page posts basic information on scheduled and planned state DOT research peer exchanges.
